ILA | Michigan: Capitol Commission to discuss Firearms in the Capitol on Monday!

Gun News


On Monday, May 11 at 11am, the Michigan Capitol Commission will meet to discuss the possession of firearms in the Capitol and on Capitol Square.  While the meeting notice does not state the Commission will consider banning firearms specifically, this will likely drive the discussion.  Please contact the members of the Commission and respectfully urge them not to prohibit the exercise of a constitutionally protected right by law-abiding citizens on property open to the public. 

Michigan law on this matter is clear.  Local units of government are prohibited from restricting firearm possession in public.  Michigan’s firearm preemption law states in full: “[a] local unit of government shall not impose special taxation on, enact or enforce any ordinance or regulation pertaining to, or regulate in any other manner the ownership, registration, purchase, sale, transfer, transportation, or possession of pistols, other firearms, or pneumatic guns, ammunition for pistols or other firearms, or components of pistols or other firearms, except as otherwise provided by federal law or a law of this state.” 

Again, please contact members of the Michigan Capitol Commission before the Monday meeting and respectfully urge them recognize the right of law-abiding gun owners to carry a firearm for self-defense and to oppose any restriction on the carrying of firearms in the Capitol or on Capitol Square.

  1. 676977 722094Very good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that Ive truly enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. After all I will probably be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write once more quite soon! 171092

  2. 455422 697469The book is excellent, but this review is not exactly spot-on. Being a Superhero is much more about selecting foods that heal your body, not just eating meat/dairy-free. Processed foods like those mentioned in this review arent what Alicia is trying to promote. If you arent open to sea vegetables (and yes, Im talking sea weed), just stop at vegan. 930152
